    Reward offered for information on missing Rusk Co. man

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Missing in East Texas: James Tidwell Jr. - 5 years later

    Why would a man leave behind his glasses, truck and simply...vanish?

    The question lingers on the minds of investigators and the family members of James Tidwell Jr.

    "He did not voluntarily, willingly walk off that property and leave all of this work and all of these things that he's done," said Lynn Akin, Tidwell Jr.'s, sister. "It's not like it's presented to be. We don't have answers between what happened from point A to point B."
    He worked the overnight shift at his job and left to go home at 5:30 a.m. He reportedly told his employer he would come back later that afternoon. However, he never showed.

    "Flander called Jimmy's house and talked to Carol, Jimmy's wife," Akin says. "She told him he had been up working on taxes all night. She said she would not wake him up and would refuse to do so."

    According to records, a week went by without Tidwell Jr., showing up for work.

    On February 20, Tidwell Jr.'s, employer contacted authorities asking them to check on him. After hearing nothing, they called again on February 28. That's when it was discovered something was wrong.

    There were no signs of Tidwell Jr., at his house and no indications of foul play.
    Tidwell Jr.'s wife told officers she had been staying with family in Nacogdoches, due to the cabin still being under construction. She said she last saw her husband on February 24, four days before he was reported missing.

    The Rusk County Sheriff's Office tells KETK, Tidwell Jr.'s, wife has never been charged with anything and, to their knowledge, she had nothing to do with this.

    But Akin argues...she knows more than she's telling.

    "Her stories just kept scrambling," Akin claims. "I did not see Jimmy that Friday, but I had called and talked to him. A few minutes later, Carol said she did not talk to Jimmy on that Friday, but that she went by and saw him feed the chickens."

    "I can't prove it," says Akin. "We don't have a body, we don't have a crime scene, but that's what I feel in my heart and I have a right to say. I don't know what you've heard, but the facts still remain. He's still missing."

    Tidwell Jr.'s, case remains open, and his sister is still waiting for answers, constantly reading her timeline of events, while holding on to the memories of the man who was always there for her.

    "Life goes on," Akin explains. "But, you never stop looking. You never stop asking. You never stop wondering. It never goes away."
